the past four years, and into the recent election, the issue of health care has been at the center of our nation's great policy debates with implications beyond the health care industry packing our large -- impacting our larger fiscal policy and social concerns. we are fortunate to have with us today mr. brussard to share insights on the developing policy. prior to joining humana in 2011, he was an executive with the corporation, and before that, u.s. oncology. large producers and providers of health care products to major health care institutions. with that background, mr. brussard brings to the podium today a broad perspective on the health care issues facing the country. he has an undergraduate degree from texas texas a&m, and mba fm university of houston. we look forward to your comments today on this very important topic. thanks for being here. [applause] >> thank you, thank you, everyone. [applause] >> well, thank you, and i really appreciate the opportunity to address each one of you. as we talk today, our nation is actually wrestling with one of the largest issues probably in a lo
, who was courting gun owners in his very pro-second amendment state of nevada, in a tough battle for re-election. >> i also want to thank you, senator, for your support every day at the federal level for the second amendment, and for the rights of american gun owners. >> both reid and the nra declined to talk to cnn on camera, but democratic sources on capitol hill say the nra was not the only threat to the president's health care bill. lawmakers were also worried about conspiracy theories, circulating among gun enthusiasts that falsely accused the obama administration of plotting to use the health care law to go after gun owners. one group, gun owners of america, insists it could still happen. >> it says that all of our medical records are available to be pawed through by bureaucrats somewhere in washington, looking for a reason to disenfranchise gun owners. >> the senate majority leader's views on gun control are changing. he's in a different place than he was in 2010, says an adviser. consider how reid answered the question after the july movie theater massacre in colorado. >> with the schedu
election because of controversial statements on the israeli reluctance. among the reason for that concern and in some cases outright opposition. seven of the 12 republican members of the armed services committee expressing some opposition with at least three senators already saying they will vote no. senator david fisher saying, i will be a no-vote and on the floor. south carolina senator lindsay gramm calling hegel and antagonistic and in-your-face nomination to all of those who support israel. freshman senator ted crews of texas absolutely unloading while calling him too weak for the job >> it is interesting. the president seems bound and determined to proceed down this path despite the fact that his record is troubling. he has not been a friend, and in my view, the united states should stand unshakeable with the nation of israel, and he is consistently advocating weakness with respect to our enemies, with respect to the nation of iran, he has exposed sanctions, and the job of the secretary of defense is to be a serious, credible strength and a deterrent and, unfortunately, i think weak
in election when the people kept them in charge of the house in the same election. election have consequences, of course. perhaps hiking taxes on the rich is up with of them. but that does not mean we don't do a lick about our debt. not getting a handle on spending wasn't one of them. hearing only one side don't make you a journalist but doing so to ignore the other side makes you charyl top. charlatan. go after the goose, go after the gander. what is a gander? do you know? be fair, balanceed. both sides. have at it. >> dana: hello, i'm dana perino with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, eric bolling, andrea tantaros. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> dana: earlier today, president obama held the final press conference of his first term in the east room of the white house. the main attraction, our old friend the debt ceiling. they could default on the debt, unless the debt ceiling is raised. republicans want the president to cut spending before they i gree on a deal. but the president at no time seem eager for compromise. listen. >> we have to stop lurking from crisis to
of this president. we probably will start right away recruiting challengers for the next elections. local union leaders, local party officials, and activists. we would happily send out an e- mail in the district to those who support medicare and social security and medicaid cuts. host: have you ever want that at some members of congress? guest: we have launched it publicly in the more generic sense, saying this is a warning. we want to be transparent. we don't learn from this nuclear war. for someone like me woke up every day in 2008 and thought, what can i do today to get barack obama elected president. he publicly admitted that he put social security benefits on the table. that's not a position i want to be in and not what i worked for and to thousand eight. host: did you work for it in 2012? guest: our organization prioritized congress in 2012. our number one candidate was elizabeth warren. she's already been told, calling out aig and big wall street bankers yesterday. we raised $1.5 million from grassroots contributions in this last election cycle. we raised $100,000 before she even announc
and despite the election results, the position that has been taken on the part of house republicans is that we have to do it our way. if we don't, we simply will not pay america's bills. that cannot be a position that is sustainable over time. it's not one that is good for the economy now and it will not be the precedent i want to establish not just for my presidency but for the future. even if it was on the other side. democrats do not like voting for the debt ceiling yet you never saw a situation in which democrats suggested that we would go ahead and all that we did not get our way 100%. that's not how it works. >> on the issue of guns, given how typical it will be, impossible, to get any gun- control measure passed through this congress, what are you willing or able to do using the powers of your presidency to act without congress? i would also like to know what you make of these long lines we're seeing at gun shows and gun stores all around the country? even in connecticut, applications are up since the shooting. >> my understanding of the vice- president will provide a range of steps we
's capital are deals. it's a place created for one thing, for elected people from across this country to come and meet, get to know each other, and find a way to direct the country. the working principle is that we the american people can send people here who can do the job to make things work, to make government of, by and for the people be just that. the movie "lincoln," especially the second half of the movie, the part about winning congressional passage of the 13th amendment to outlaw slavery is about washington doing its job. people get squeezed. they get paid off with jobs. in short, they get worked. go see "lincoln," or go back and watch "recan" and see how things work on the inside. that's "hardball" for now, thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz start right now. >> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the nra wants a assault weapons ban off the table. the white house disagrees. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i do not think there is going to be a ban on so-called assault weapons passed by the congress. >> the nra continues
've got to say, if you look at how the republican party reacted the first time president obama was elected, i wrote a book that basically could be boiled down to don't lose your -- al roker at the white house. >> exactly. >> they didn't listen. they went out, they engaged in birtherism, they called the president a racist who hated all white people, and they went so far right and so extreme that they lost middle america. and so yeah, we lost another presidential election. look at the cover of "drudge" which i think magnificently reflects the feelings of conservatives, where the conservative movement is. and you know, he links stories that people want to see, and he does it better than anybody else. this weekend, i went on "drudge." and at the top of it is a story of survivalists. that are buying property, arming themselves and building walls out west. you have sean hannity who is talking about secession. you have another talk radio host whose name isn't even worth mentioning that is talking basically about -- about how the federal government is coming in and taking weapons, you know. there'
't going to be done until the next election or until something else changes. this is something that clearly, particularly republicans in the house really want to push. they're going to use every opportunity that they can. we managed to get some of the tax issues taken off the table at the end of last year. that was difficult for a lot of us to watch. but there's still some questions about spending. that's going to come up in the next couple of months. there's appropriations to be done. i imagine that conversation will keep on going. and i was very worried after i first came back to work after the break, because i said, well, what is this going to do for the immigration agenda? having covered this in the past, i know how much energy it takes from members. but i don't think that the members who are going to be the most involved in the fiscal cliff spending kinds of discussions are the same ones who are going to be pushing on immigration. and as long as you have someone in the senate, like majority leader harry reid, who also wants to move forward, i think you're still going to see some action
with the congress about who deleted references to al-qaeda three weeks before the election. i think it was purposefully done and i want to know who did it before we move forward. >> you're committed to holding the nomination up? >> yeah. i don't want to. but i'm not going to let the administration get away from having to be held accountable. the state department, you will hear from hillary clinton. who did change the talking points and take al-qaeda out? what did the president do in seven hours? they are making two movies about the strong leadership and the bin laden raid. this administration leaked every detail about the bin laden raid so the world would know how strong their own national security. when you have a major debacle like benghazi you can't get basic information four months later. i don't think they are pursuing offenders aggressively, frankly. they are stonewalling the congress. john brennanbe nor anyone else should be concerned as the acting director of the c.i.a. until the c.i.a. accounts for their role in changing the talking points. >> bret: director was asked about
explains why we still don't have a budget and how our elected officials have bungled a basic business process most of us handle with ease. a must see. "your money" starts right now. jo america's road to economic recovery is wide open, right in front of us, if our elected officials don't put major blocks in your way. i'm ali velshi. debt ceilings, budgets and spending cuts are all you'll hear coming out of washington for the next few months. the partisan warfare in washington could put a dent in any recovery. the threat is real. the next battle will be another clash over raising the u.s. debt ceiling. the current ceiling was officially hit on december 31st, but like last time the u.s. treasury is using extraordinary measures to get through about late february or early march. if congress doesn't act by then, the government risks not being able to pay some of its bills. republicans seem to think the debt ceiling is a useful tool to limit how much the government spends, but that is not what the debt ceiling law is supposed to do. it gives the u.s. treasury the flexibility to borrow money
. on election he is feeling good about himself and feeling like there can be no opposition to his position and so it doesn't seem, he doesn't seem terribly concerned there is not a lot of concern for chuck hagel. >> another nomination will be for treasury secretary as well. perhaps jack lu who is currently the chief of staff at white house is the leading candidate. how would you vote on lu? >> i would have to look at his record and listen to what he has to say. i will tell you my view on any treasury secretary would be that i would want to hear some real proposals for growth. and this whole debate about the fiscal cliff we have been talking about taxes and talking about spending. noticeably absent from the equation has been growth. and the biggest economic problem of the last four years has been the dismal economic growth. under barack obama our economy has grown 1.5% a year for four years. less than half the historical -- >> this gets no the whole idea of retooling the republican party under the heading of opportunity conservativism which i would like to get into in just a second. do you
. this is a leadership moment for all people in elected office in this country. we are at a crossroads. which way do we turn? it's no time to change the conversation and start picking on the first amendment and say, well, it's the entertainment industry. the entertainment industry has been around for a long, long time. governor christie, it's the guns. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, will the nra and republicans block responsible gun legislation? text a for yes. text b for now to 622639. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring results later on. joining me tonight is katrina van den hubbell. the conversation is elevating on all levels. with the hysteria coming from the right wing, is it going to make it tougher to get more reasonable gun legislation in this country? >> yeah, but i think you're right, ed. i think we're at a crossroads. it's a singular moment for to end gun violence there is a poll out today showing the nra at its lowest opinion point in years, largely because of wayne lapierre's speech written by satirist jonathan swift. gab
meaningful. it can be done with obama's re-elected and i still have the majority. we can do it with a simple majority at the beginning of the congress. >> welcome back to "the ed show." senate majority leader harry reid promising to pass the filibuster reform at the beginning of the 113th congress. that was on my radio show back in july. well, president obama has been reelected. the democrats held on to a simple majority in the senate. so it's time. so by reid's account, the time for real reform is on january 22nd when the senate votes on the congressional sessions rule book, which is why harry reid is the most important man in american politics right now. senate republicans of the 112th congress used and abused the filibuster as a tool for the minority to prevent the will of the majority. and it's looking like the 113th congress couldn't be any different. just take a look at republican opposition to president obama's recent cabinet nominations. republican senator jeff sessions of alabama issued a statement saying that jack lew must never be secretary of the treasury. sessions has made the r
filing paperwork with the federal election commission this week. meanwhile, politoco reports a top aide to democratic senator frank lawsuit enberg called booker "self-absorbed" accusing the mayor of bee trying the democratic party by skipping a run against republican governor chris christie. >>> well, joining me right now we have msnbc contributing and managing editor joy an reid and white house reporter for the "washington post." and with a hello to both of you, david i'm going to go up to you first. let's go to afghanistan with the president accelerating the withdrawal of troops right now. what did we learn from that news conference as to a timeline? >> well, alex, it was very interesting. the words that the president used he kept saying several times not only is the war for americans going to come to an end by the end of 2014, which we all knew, but as soon as this spring america is going to allow the afghan forces around the country to take the lead in securing their own nation. that's moved up the timetable by a few months. what that seems to signal was we may be able to remove the
at the same time, address safe gun legislation and immigration. that's what they were elected to do. >> because i know that at the news conference the president will open up with a statement on the deficit and raidsing the nation's debt ceiling, but you know the reporters are going to ask questions on those two issues that you just raised. let's just quickly talk about both of these. you're here in washington to talk about the -- you may well remember president obama trieded it, he had ted kennedy on his side, he had mccain on his side, it didn't go anywhere. what do you think if the president tries to push for comprehensive immigration reform including a pathway to citizenship for so many of the ten, 10 million illegal immigrations from -- >> they lost about 71% of the latino vote, 74% of the asian vote. the vast majority of people in the country in poll after poll after poll including your own say that people want comprehensive immigration reform that provides a pathway for citizenship. i saw john mccain yesterday on face the nation and i can tell you that we were in the room toge
: what about making republicans more efficient. what happened to you, you lost the election you lost your backbone? >> i don't believe so. i certainly have you. if you are talking about the fiscal cliff, back in 2003 they made tax cuts temporary. they extended the temporary nature come two years but come january 1st income tax was going up. so this was protecting 99% of americans. republicans wanted to protect every american. we didn't want to see taxes increased on anybody. we didn't have that option. all we could do because president obama demanded the taxes were going up for some americans. >> neil: for this whole kubuki theater was silly? >> the house passed extension past august. harry reid refused to bring it up. president owes congress a report because medicare is spending out of the general fund 45% what it is paid for benefits. that required by law and 15 days after he submits a budget he has to submit a report to fix it. four years he hasn't done that. we should be demanding of this president to follow lawsuit on. >> neil: you voted for this cliff deal in the senate. do you thin
are whining about the president's choice for defense secretary. tonight a reminder of who won the election and why this is the perfect guy. let's get to work. >> chuck hagel is the leader that our troops deserve. he is an american patriot. >> president obama nominates chuck hagel as defense secretary, and conservatives are fuming. >> positions that he has taken over the years will be, i think very much a matter of discussion. >> this is an in-your-face nomination by the president. >> if hagel is nominated, it is very difficult to imagine circumstance in which i could support his confirmation. >> admiral joe sestak and richard wolffe are here on the road to confirmation and what this could mean for defense cuts. >>> republicans are coming out for the government shutdown. >> you think that's a good idea? >> yes, i do. >> you really do? >> yes. >> john nichols on their backwards reasoning. >>> mcdonnell doesn't mind another hostage situation for the deficit, at the expense of the most vulnerable. david cay johnston lays out the gop fabricated spending problem ahead. >>> the opposition on gun
on that. >> certainly political capital spent from getting re-elected to a second term. gregory, i want to show everybody the letter that ed mentioned that was sent to president obama on friday. in part saying, we believe you must be willing to take any lawful steps to ensure that america does not blake its promises and trigger a global economic crisis. without congressional approval, if necessary. basically recommending the 14th amendment. >> i think two important points here. one, we must emphasize, we're not talking spending here. this is not the regular gop line about cutting spending. we're talking about paying bills that have already -- we've already occurred here. i think for them to play games like this on playing bills is a total height of irresponsibility. secondly, the ramifications of it. i think what the president should do today is not only reaffirm the line in the sand, jay carney and others have set, and the president said he's not negotiating on this, but also say to the public, what this will mean in terms of our global standing, what would be the ramifications of it.
on this, but it's fascinating to look at this in the broader context of the 2014 elections, and even after 2016, where i think what the liberal groups hope to do right now is consolidate their victories in 2012 and expand on them over the next four years. >> megyn: to what extent can they accomplish these goals? because these are not moneyless, powerless groups? these are heavy hitters and now going to work together and they say it's up to 30 to 35 groups that are going to work together to accomplish these goals. >> we've seen that the president has been responsive to pushes from his left in his first term. if you look, for instance, at what happened with the keystone pipeline, there were basically threats by the environmental groups that they were not going to take their access out, not going door-to-door for the president if in tactful fact backed the keystone pipeline. i'm not sure you can drawing a correlation between those two, but there's no question that that agitation had an influence on the white house and with the president and we've seen that with other groups and i think that's
that conversation, and despite the election results, the position that has been taken on the part of some house republicans is that, no, we have to do it our way. if we do not, we simply will not pay america's bills. that cannot be a position that is sustainable over time. it is not one that is good for the economy now. even if it was on the other side. democrats do not like voting for the debt ceiling when a republican is president. but you never saw the situation in which democrats suggested somehow that we would go ahead and the fall if we did not get 100% of our way. that is just not how it is supposed to work. >> thank you, mr. president. on the issue of guns, given how difficult it would be to get any gun-control measure pass through this congress, what are you willing or able to do using the powers of your presidency to act without congress and i would also like to know, what do you make of these long lines we are seeing at gun shows all around the country? >> well, my understanding, as the vice president will provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence. some of them
in addition to six adults. he will also be asked about reshuffling his cabinet. his election of chuck hagel as defense secretary, moderate senator from nebraska, drawing fire mainly from republicans. all but negating the president's attempt to reach across the aisle. hagel has been criticized for his criticism what he calls the jewish lobby which he says has inintimidated members of congress. he is seen by be republicans being weak on iriran. the president may face complications in head of the homeland security john brennan to head the cia. he worked for the cia for 25 years. his selection to head the post not draws as much criticism as republicans see an opening to once again probe the ashes of the tragedy at the u.s. consulate in benghazi that cost the life of an american ambassador and three others. heather? heather: wendell goler in washington. thank you so much. sounds just like about everything including the kitsch -- kitchen sink in washingtoners for more let's talk with david drucker, associate politics he had tore roll call. there is great deal of thought for the news conference th
equated the banning of guns because of the way they look. people were warned that president obama was re-elected, he would be coming after our guns. the predictions have panned out. >> the fact he hasn't done it is proof that he's planning to. >> stephanie: this is when you start getting into the lunatic fringe -- the president is behind the shooting in newtown to get gun control enacted. you're off down the rabbit hole. she said we're in for a massive fight like we've never seen before. s the color of a gun, the way it looks, it is just bad politics. >> oh, my god. wow. >> stephanie: that's exactly the same. and you're not banning a gun because of the way it looks. >> it is what it does. >> you're a gunnist. that's what you are. you put people in prison because of what they do. not because of how they look. >> it makes me look fat. >> stephanie: right. that's what i meant. >> stephanie: alabama, right wing douche nozzle alabama forces teachers to be armed. another what could possibly go wrong, vermont teacher turns in rifle before being committed to a mental institution. vermont high schoolteac
minister medvedev about more flexibility after the election. well, this is flexibility manifesting itself. we're pushing everything up more quickly. moving up the time line contradicts a lot of reports we've seen about the readiness of the afghan national army, whether they will truly be prepared to secure the country both to protect the regime there but also ensure the mission we went there to execute, which is prevent al qaeda and radical islamist extremists from having a haven from which to operate, whether they'll be able to do that. that is still an open question making this announcement -- >> what are we doing now, pete? some folks say we're kind of sitting ducks in some way. is the mission going on? what is the mission? what is the end goal in your mind as a veteran? >> sure. the end goal should be to secure america's interests. this is not about building a nation for afghan. let's be clear about that. however, i don't think a rush for the exits right now is the way to do it. a gradual, measured withdrawal based on conditions where we train the afghan national army to be capable. w
of the gun issue. well, for the first time since al gore lost the election, there has been a sustained conversation about what the government can or should do about gun violence. as vice president biden prepares to unveil proposals, some details are emerging. universal background checks on gun buyers ramped up prosecutions for gun purchasers who lie on background check forms and restrictions on high capacity clips. also says it is not backing off a push for a new ban on assault weapons. this morning, vice president biden will meet with members of the house gun violence prevention task force. which includes carolyn mccarthy and arizona's ron barber, who was wounded in the tucson shooting. we've also seen the democratic party ko ales around it more than before. in its future, nominees are pressing for gun control. look at andrew cuomo and martin o'malley. if anything, real gets done on guns in washington, it will be because of victim's groups and a group called sandy hook's promise will kick off the press conference this morning. >> i'd like to tee newtown come out as not as a place -- h
to schumer for helping them get elected in 2006-2008. if the most prominent jewish senator on the democratic side of is there, it could be very difficult for him to get an easy confirmation vote. >> ed o'keefe, michael, thank you. >> thank you. >>> just a reminder, we will have the press conference live here on msnbc that is coming up in about an hour, 11:15. >>> big night for the golden glo glob glob globes for politics. dab el day-lewis won best actor for "lincoln," jessica best actress for "zero dark thirty" and "game change" won three, including best mini series. president bill clinton walked out to a standing ovation and introduced a clip from "lincoln." >> a tough fight to push a bill through a bitterly divided house of representatives. winning it required the president to make a lot of unsavory deals. they had nothing to do with big issues. i wouldn't know anything about that. >> special guest, that would. that's right. is even better for the cup. new single serve cafe collections from maxwell house. now available for use in the keurig k-cup brewer. always good to the last drop. five
as lawmakers need money to get re-elected, how can any law maker really take a stand and make it stick? >> we simply have to take a stand, and the nra leadership has never shown any shortage of arrogance, and they're not displaying any humility now, but this is a real tipping point. the country has reached an awful fatigue with these repeated gun tragedies. i think that will be reflected in what congress does. i think it will develop the spine and backbone necessary to pass an assault weapons ban, a ban on ammunition clips, to pass universal background checks, and i hope to remove this immunity that only one industry in america enjoys and that, in fact, protects a lot of unscrupulous gun sellers and dealers. >> congressman adam schiff, thanks so much for being with us. >>> it's been one month to the day since the killing rampage at sandy hook elementary in newtown, connecticut. as the heart broken town searches for some semblance of normalcy, it should also wrestle with the question, should the school be left standing? about 200 people gathered to debate the future of sandy hook elementary. s
of this definition. it is the same definition under the citizen united versus federal election commission case in 2010 where the united states supreme court said essentially the same thing that a corporation is a person. so his disputing this because he thinks that that ruling is, in his opinion ridiculous. so he will use that in the traffic trial. jenna: he has been trying to get caught for 10 years, doug. trying to be caught in the carpool lane to get caught in this. does he have a case? >> it is interesting because you sort of have two answers. the common sense and living room answer, come on, this is ridiculous. the whole purpose of the law is to reduce traffic and have individuals carpool together. jenna: correct. >> but, john makes a good point which is the legal analysis answer is, statute he do fines a person to include a corporation, and the legislature so runs the argument, should have said human beings in the car and by the way, jenna, living human beings. this way we don't have a problem of a dead body in the trunk qualifying, jon for the high occupancy vehicle lane. joking aside,
with the fiscal cliff, they've heard us with the election and the last debt ceiling. and they heard us with the italian bonds. they're saying, maybe the media is too negative. >> speaking of deals, let's talk about one deal that does not look like it's going to happen. u.p.s. is abandoning the takeover of dutch delivery firm citing resistance from european regulators. u.p.s. had sought to buy them for the european network in business in asia and latin america. not entirely a surprise, i would imagine, since the ecb had sent a number of requirements out. >> but melissa, i think there was a generally held belief this was making good progress. i think the reason you're seeing tnt shares down so sharply because it was something of a surprise. you know, it may trade over there, but the fact ,t is owned largely to -- well, over here, and as you might expect hedge funds have been big players in this. they are getting -- well, they're just getting crushed today, as you see that stock down. it was a debate about creating competition there. there appeared to be the dpd division of lepost, the fr
generations. -- no longer exist for future generations. >> the republican response, the newly elected member of the 113 congress. some of you are already weighing in on our face of page -- facebook page. -- from our twitter page, there is this from jim -- it is not the second amendment, it is the 14th amendment. democrats urging obama to bypass the republicans on the debt. one option for congressional democrats would involve the president invoking the 14th amendment of the constitution to declare congressional action unnecessary for raising the limit. let's read you just a portion of what the amendment states. " the validity of the public debt of the united states, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned." that is part of what this debate is all about. let's go to teresa, joining us from north las vegas nevada. the democrat line. caller: good morning. i wanted to call in support of the president and democrats. i am a progressive and in independent thinker. i do not think yo
will walk behind you any moment. there is a very thin line between leverage coming off an election and lame duck status, and the president has a robust agenda for this term number 2. >> it is, and the first year of second terms are the ones you have a shot as sitting president to have the most productive parts. but i want to go back and emphasize something david said, and that has to do with what the president has chosen to talk about, the debt ceiling, he knows he can't get to anything else until these budget battles are finally behind him. as long as those are staring the president in the face, guns put to the side, immigration to the side, education, even issues with health care, all of them become side issues if you cannot get this budget impasse behind him. >> you'll have a front row seat. the white house hastily announced this morning that this would be happening. again, as we said, the 37th time in a formal manner the president has met with the news media as we'll look at -- we'll take a look at it, we'll be able to see him walk up the side room to the podium to take questions, but a
